Flyers goalie Mason back on ice after injury: report
Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason was back on the ice Monday, three weeks after breaking his right pinky finger, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason was back on the ice Monday, three weeks after breaking his right pinky finger, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

Mason was injured July 27. General manager Ron Hextall said at the time Mason would be able to continue off-ice training.

Mason was 33-18-7 in his first full season with the Flyers, with a 2.50 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.

He had an upper-body injury prior to the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs but returned to go 2-2 with a 1.97 GAA and .939 save percentage in a seven-game loss to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference First Round.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
